Yet they were as beautifully smooth as her voice when she admitted: ``That protection naturally is only partial. Often the trend was destructive, so that societies destroyed fertile land through overgrazing, poor agricultural practises, war and deforestation. Yet we speak different languages, eat different foods, and dream different dreams. Kung arrow can bring down a 200-kilogram antelope in less than a day. [560] � What kind of animal in the Western Hemisphere and Australia, that had never seen anything like a human before, and would have been the mother lode kill of the invaders, and the large ones all reproduced slowly, could have withstood that onslaught?� None that I can think of.� Neanderthals were ambush predators of megafauna that were wary of humans, and whatever projectile weapons they may have had, they would have been inferior to those that behaviorally modern humans left Africa with about 60-50 kya.� Neanderthals still lived off of those animals, with many broken bones and undoubted deaths suffered during hunts.� That would have been nothing like what the invaders of the Western Hemisphere and Australia encountered.� They could have walked right up to all of those animals with no conditioned fear of humans and stuck their spears into them, maybe not even needing to use projectile weapons, much less poisoned ones.� That sce nario has been called the Blitzkrieg Hypothesis, but it would not have seemed a rapid event to the invaders.� It would have been a butcher shop�s version of the Garden of Eden.� Farther than they could imagine, in every direction, were animals with no fear of humans that could be killed so easily that it may have literally become child�s play.
